I don’t know what took me so long to try this.
I guess a big part of it was that I never realized how simple it was.
Cashew Cream Cheese
- 1 cup raw cashews
- 3 probiotic capsules
- 1/4 cup filtered water (chlorine in tap water can disrupt/inhibit enzyme/culturing activity).
- Soak 1 cup cashews overnight
- Drain & rinse cashews, then blend in a food processor along with 1/4 cup water for a couple minutes (add additional water by the tsp as necessary to blend – but you’ll want it as thick as possible)
- Place in a glass or ceramic dish, cover with a clean cloth/towel and let sit at room temperature for 18-24 hours
That’s it! It’s so simple. You can also flavor it as desired (roasted garlic, chives, caramelized onions, jalapenos etc.)
Happy to be able to enjoy the occasional bagel & cream cheese again!
(the other half of the bagel had cream cheese + tomato + cucumber but it was so good I ate it without capturing it first! Haha
Give it a try! Let me know what you think and what meals you use it for!
